Betty Bowen panelists had their work cut out for them this year. Out of 494 applicants, they've narrowed it down to the final five, Jovencio de la Paz, Josh Faught, Jenny Heishman, Sean Johnson, and Matthew Offenbacher (shown in order above). Congratulations to everyone who applied. And a big congrats to Billy Howard whose gallery shows three out of the five finalists.

Hi Dean:
